Here is what Trump's
Opposition to Online Gambling Highlights Platform of Trump Running Mate Mike Pence
"Despite occupying the top executive position within Indiana – which includes brick and mortar casinos, pari-mutuel betting on horse racing, and a state lottery among its economic engines – Pence has long been opposed to the gambling industry on all levels.
In May of 2014, shortly after the Sheldon Adelson-backed federal online poker ban known as the Restoration of America’s Wire Act (RAWA) was introduced, Pence penned a letter to Indiana’s congressional delegation urging the lawmakers to vote in favor of outlawing online poker across the U.S.
In the letter, Pence made his stance on online gambling, poker or otherwise, perfectly clear:
“I write regarding Internet gambling, which I have long opposed. When I served in Congress, I was pleased to support the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 (“UIGEA”)"
This guy is BAD for the future of online gambling. Thank god the VP has no real power we might
be waiting a long time for fantasy football betting.
